When selling physical items in commerce, you may want to ensure that you pass shipment costs on to your customers. You can do this by setting up shipment rates within the commerce system. You can set up these from Commerce>Payments>Shipments within the admin CP
When visiting this area, you will see any items awaiting to be shipped on the first page. Select the Shipping Rates button in order to add and edit shipping rates on the system.
In this page you will see all shipping rates which are currently set up. Below you can see I have set up only 1 shipping rate at present named "Shipping to Angola" however you can set up as many of these as you like within the system by selectin "Create new"
Adding a new shipping rate
Shipping rates are added to products based on locations and either price, quantity, or weight. In the top half of the page you will enter a name and the relevant location in which this shipping rate can be used.
In the bottom half of the page you will see that you can add either by Invoice subtotal, Weight, or Number. Below are 3 examples showing the 3 different types you can choose.
When adding weights you can choose the measurement of weight that is used in lb or kg
You will see that you can add as many lines as you like to make the shipping values that you wish, so for example below I have set 0 to 5 items, 5 to 10 items, and 11 onward (denoted by the any value flag) to be different values.
